No Drinking...Except For Jäger Bombs

My guest blogger, Tony, found this sign in a park. Here's his take on things:

"I've been noticing these signs at various parks in the Capitol Hill area, but I've always forgotten to bring along my camera for a shot. Today I got it. As most of us know, District of Columbia parks have rules, being funded by the government: they close at dusk, and no one is allowed to be drinking in the park at any time.

This sign further elucidates by showing you cannot drink beer out of bottles or glasses, and it would appear cocktail drinking and martinis are also prohibited. So, no more formal affairs in the park, please! I love how they added an olive to the martini glass. What about Appletinis?"

Palliatives Prohibited.....

It doesn't say anything about cocaine, does it?

Good for the DC government. I have long been concerned about the congregating of cocktail-swilling swells in our public parks. It is disturbing to see crowds of 50-somethings sipping highballs in Lincoln Park and other venues. "Vera, can I offer you a drink?"

I love when you quote from Auntie Mame, Grince. You left out Claude Upson making his daiquiris with...honey...and Mame uttering, "So THAT's your secret ingredient. Pause. So...SWEET." Right now it's 10 a.m., Grince, what Mame calls "the middle of the night."

I'm just thinking that Nick and Nora Charles won't be having cocktails at Lincoln or Statton Park anytime soon...same goes for the little triangle park at Eastern Market.

A Jäger Bomb is Jägermeister and Red Bull as a shot. Nasty, nasty. The Red Bull keeps you up all night. The Jäger makes you very drunk.
